KSS Music Dept presents- Encore 2013

Music is good for your brain, your soul and your stress level.  This concert is guaranteed to raise your spirits and your endorphin levels .  Our bands play at a professional level.  I had the pleasure of listening to some of our students play with the Okanagan Symphony orchestra on Friday…they are that good!  Our choirs have also performed with the professionals and been recognized for their talent.  Take the time to support the bands and choirs and let music bring you to a better place.  See poster below for details.

If you see the following students please congratulate them:
Anthony, James, Spencer, Corey (  from MBSS  Craig Thomson’s music program)
After attending the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival with my grade 12 Jazz Band 4 of the 12 students that performed received a Commendation Award for their improvisation/soloing abilities. This is a huge honour from a very prestigious festival.

Antony and James have also both written musical compositions that their Jazz Combo’s performed in Idaho. They will perform these April12 in the BC Interior Jazz Festival in Kelowna. Both compositions are excellent.

Congratulations to Ms. French and Mr. Wong  for their inspiration and leadership KSS Music Dept.
